lactis strain Bb12, a commonly used probiotic, was able to adapt to the galactoglucomannan leading to more efficient utilization of hemicellulose-derived saccharides," the study authors submit: "Our study demonstrates prebiotic properties for galactoglucomannan.
Galactoglucomannan extracted from spruce (Picea abies) as a carbohydrate source for probiotic bacteria.
The carbs, predominantly a group known as "GGMOs"--short for galactoglucomannan oligosaccharides--are a key ingredient in Previda, an all-natural dietary ingredient marketed to makers of pet food, aquaculture feed, and other animal-nutrition products.
Galactoglucomannan oligosaccharides (GGMOs) in certain concentrations might inhibit rooting and the elongation process dependant on auxin used (Kollarova et al.
3) The presence of mannose and xylose in the extract from weathered veneer was indicative of galactoglucomannan and arabinoglucuronoxylan hemicelluloses being the dominant hemicelluloses in P.
were purified with gel filtration to give the homogenic heteroglycans Pc-1, Pc-2, Pc-3 and the galactoglucomannan Pc-4.
These hemicelluloses are predominately glucurono-xylan in hardwoods and galactoglucomannan in softwoods (with a significant softwood component of an arabino-xylan) and will yield fermentation substrates different from cellulose.
